    1st Sundays - Group Meditation @ 9 am

    This retreat is designed to be a container of silence for anyone interested in reflection and meditation.  Retreat begins at 9 am and ends at noon with breaks on the hour. You're welcome to come for any part of the morning!  Meets at Hagoya Yoga Studio.

    2nd Sundays - Dharma Talk @ 11 am

    This gathering includes a meditation, talk and open discussion led by IPBC Dharma teachers. Our goal is to bring traditional teachings into our modern, Western lives in a practical, useful way so that we might take our practice off the cushion and into the world. Come listen to the Dharma illuminated from a variety of viewpoints with practical insight and gentle humor.

    2nd Wednesdays - Chant Night @ 7 pm

    Come join your voices, bodies, and minds in harmony in an evening of traditional chanting and meditation! All are welcome – no experience necessary. This practice is accessible and beneficial to beginners and seasoned practitioners alike (you don't have to know the words because we provide an easy-to-follow chant sheet).

    3rd Sundays - Dharma Teachings @ 11 am

    All warmly welcomed for this group sangha practice as we learn about some of the specific terms, concepts and teachings in Buddhism.

    4th Sundays - 4 Noble Truths @ 11 am

    A gathering that focuses on the Buddha’s teachings on the Four Noble Truths and the Eightfold Path. Discussion relates not only to the teachings themselves, but also our understanding of the teachings through our own direct life experiences.

    5th Sundays - Sangha Practice @ 11 am

    On 5th Sundays, we will gather as a sangha to watch or listen to talks from well-known Dharma teachers or hear from a guest speaker. A great chance to hear and see from a new perspective!

    IPBC Calendar

    Off the cushion and into the world.

    At Inner Peace Buddhist Center, the work of sitting on the cushion is only part of life’s experience. We seek to extend our practice to all areas of life in order to express the Bodhisattva ideal of easing suffering through wisdom and compassion.

    IPBC draws from the richness of many traditions in a simple yet powerful practice of the Buddhist basics, especially as they apply to our everyday lives. We encourage people to practice and follow a Buddhist path that is as individual and unique as they are, while serving as a source for spiritual nourishment and human interconnectedness. Like the center of the Dharma wheel turning, IPBC is a hub for people to meet, practice, encourage, share and collaborate as they radiate out into the world to be of benefit to all beings, without exception.

    Our modern, globalized world gives us a unique chance in this precious lifetime to explore the foundational Buddhist teachings via the wealth of information now available to us at the touch of our fingertips, including talks, translations, commentaries, and wisdom from countless teachers past and present. With access to further guidance from its leaders and teachers, IPBC seeks to create an open, accessible, and evolved approach to Buddhism that brings Dharma to the people, cultivating wisdom and nurturing compassion for all beings everywhere, without exception.
